Engine Coolant (Antifreeze) Level Check
The cooling system is pressurized when the coolant is hot. Hot coolant will burn you. Ensure the
engine is cool before checking the coolant level or draining the system. Failure to follow this
warning may result in injury to personnel.
Do not remove radiator cap when engine is hot. Allow engine to cool down. Loosen cap to first
stop and let any pressure out of cooling system, then remove cap. Failure to follow this warning
may cause serious burns.
Park the machine on level ground.
Engage the parking brake.
Lower the work tools to the ground.
Visually check that the level of coolant is up to the line marked COLD MIN, but below the line marked HOT MAX. If
the level is low, top off with a water and antifreeze mixture as detailed below.
Remove filler cap and add pre-mixed water/antifreeze solution, until the level is up to the line marked COLD MIN. Do
Refit filler cap and ensure it is tight.
Run the engine for a while to raise coolant to operating temperature and pressure.
10. Stop the engine and check for leaks.
